Dr. Henry Nkemadu, director, Public Affairs, Nigerian Communications Commission, said in a statement last night that 5G is an advancement on today’s 4G technology, designed to transform the world positively.
According to Nkemadu, there is no deployment of 5G in Nigeria at the moment.
This is coming on the heels of the recent development in which misleading materials with no proven evidence are being circulated to link Coronavirus or COVID-19 with 5G Technology.
He further said, “The NCC, back in November 2019, approved trial test for 5G for a period of three months, and the trial has been concluded and installation decommissioned. The trial, among others, was to study and observe any health or security challenges the 5G network might present. Relevant stakeholders, including members of the security agencies, were invited to participate during the trial”
According to him, the NCC will continue to maintain its policy of technology neutrality and will continue to encourage Service Providers to deploy the best technology that will meet the needs of the society in a secured and friendly manner.
